Riffey, et al. v. CRST Expedited, Inc., et al., 3:12-cv-00294-BRW -- Witness Time
It appears to me that this case should be tried in two or three days.
I urge you to pare down your examinations, and perhaps you should pare down your witness lists.
Just an example: Plaintiffs list two hours for each Plaintiff and two hours for a doctor. I can’t imagine
why one hour wouldn’t be more than enough for each of these three witnesses.
Dr. Scott shouldn’t take over 45 minutes at the most, unless there’s something highly unusual involved
As another example, Defendant has Plaintiffs listed as 1 hour each for direct examination?
I would very much appreciate it if you would pare down your presentations on your own because I do
not like to interrupt lawyers during the trial during examination; but bare in mind that I ain’t too good
It’s not that I can’t bare up under unnecessary, extended examinations; but I am intent on keeping the
case moving in the interest of jurors’ time.
Many thanks for your careful consideration.
/s/ Billy Roy Wilson
